Workshops for June & July

Semi-Private Class for a small group

June 24th (open level)
Price: £10
Time 1.30 - 2.30pm
At the Scout Hall 76 Kelbourne St. Glasgow

These classes are offerd to 2-4 couples. Depending on the attendance the class will be taught by Sari or both Sari and Jeff. We'll warm-up with an element or a step combination that is a core part of our tango vocabulary. It may be a new addition to your skills or if a re-cap we can look at a variation. Afterwards we'll work on an individual level with each couple. You may present the material that you wish work on and develop (like a new move or something you've learned previously but it is not working...) or we can decide together what to work on. There will be no partner swapping during this class.

Learning with Glasgow Tango Studio

What to expect at our Saturday tango classes & workshops

The material we teach on this level is suitable for dancing both in an open embrace or the close embrace. Where appropriate we explain how to adapt the material to different embraces. Majority of our students prefer to develop their skills in the close embrace style especially. We introduce new vocabulary (as a continuation to our improver level), enhance musicality and expand the understanding of how tango elements can be varied and merged. You benefit from theses classes most if you dance on a regular basis.
